Freelance writing

  1. I'm trying to earn some extra money for music gear until I start school soon. I've done some writing for other websites about video games, movies, music, etc. but all on a volunteer basis. I write for a content farm called Textbroker and I've done 45 or so meaningless 500 word articles on subjects I could care less about and write SEO-level content for a total of about $140 (hopefully that will help me buy the Darkglass unit I'm after).

    I'm looking for something a little more stable, a little more respectable (things I actually care about). I can write about tech, pop, culture, music (obviously :D), firearms (niche market, I know), op-ed, news, short stories, etc.

    I'd like to start looking for maybe music magazines and websites that will pay me a somewhat decent rate for a published piece. Even $50 or $100 for a thousand word article would be a large improvement from where I'm at. I'm no Pino but I like to think I can present a lot of interesting music writing. In the past, I've done largely review work.

    If it's not music related, that's OK (that's why I put it in off topic) but does anybody have any resources or suggestions for me? Perhaps past freelance writers? I would love any ideas or opinions from you guys! I'll post a couple of my links below for reference.
